Quickslant: I am LOVING the tempo

  3 years ago     97 Views     1 Comment  

We have talked about how the Packers would have to shorten their routes and use Eddie Lacy out of the backfield to reach play count goal that McCarthy has for this team. Well, we are seeing it. I am LOVING the tempo of this Packers team. It's not just going "no huddle", there's more to it than that. The Packers put the Rams against the ropes...and then pushed. I see three things that I like about the Packers no huddle offense in this game. (more…)

AM Quickslant: 3 Targets for Aaron Rodgers Versus the Rams

It's Wednesday..."hump daaaaayyyyeah!" More preseason games again tomorrow and the Pack at the Rams on Saturday. I was watching the Aaron Rodgers interview today and three things jumped out at me. But first, let me just say that it was good to hear Aaron's thoughts on the passing of Robin Williams. We know the guy was not perfect but he gave some many people SO MANY laughs...sad. The Cheese did a little memorial post, if you want to make a comment, you can see that here. So here are a few targets that I have for Aaron Rodgers on Saturday.…

AM Quickslant: A Wet Start to the Preseason

The Packers preseason kicked off with a clash with the Titans at LP Field last night and the game couldn't have been...wetter! Shortly before the game, thunderstorms circled the area threatening to end our chances of seeing any football at all. But by game-time things had gotten a whole lot better...no thunder, no lightning...just torrential rain. We entered LP Field...well it might be more accurate to say we scuttled in like a couple of drowned rats, with football on our minds and hope in our hearts that our tickets could still be read by the scanners. Heck, I think we…

Well, even though it is not the regular season, the offseason ends today. Packernation will be once again able to see their team collide with an opponent for the first time since the end of last season. In a year in which even Family Night did not have a scrimmage, Packers fans should be pretty pumped. Well we all know that the starters will be taking very few reps until the third preseason game and we also know that the Packers are not going to be pulling out all the stops in the preseason anyway. The defenses will be pretty…

If Aaron Rodgers Says So…And I Will Give you Four More Reasons

OK, this is a post I wanted to write for a long time. The fear of backlash, jinxing the team...and the possiblity of being chewed up and spit out by Packers fans from here to kingdom come. But yesterday I was watching Steve Mariucci interview Aaron Rodgers (which was enlightening in more than one way) and Aaron himself made a comment about something I had been thinking for a long time. Aaron mentioned what he thinks of as one of the best things that happened to the team last season. If you didn't see the interview, take a guess what THAT…
